Description:

Concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur at any age. Multiple medical providers are involved when an individual suffers from a concussion or TBI. Audiologists are an important part of this multidisciplinary team, as symptoms can involve dizziness, imbalance, tinnitus, hearing loss, and auditory processing difficulties. Managing these individuals requires multidisciplinary teamwork, and most audiologists need to go outside their usual comfort zone to do so. This webinar will discuss the team approach to concussion care, why audiology is an integral part of concussion care, and how audiologists can help patients with a concussion or TBI.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Describe the audiologists’ role in the multidisciplinary management of concussion.

2. Evaluate the signs and symptoms of concussion related to audiology.

3. Apply how audiologists can prevent, evaluate, and rehabilitate individuals with concussions.
